earner full} as much as it does the
farmer. Dapid Brown, chairman of the
country life committee of the Spokane

nounces this tentative program for the

handling his affairs on a business basis,
figuring the cost of his own time and
lahor, the same as any other business
man, also will be brought out.
" We now are arranging for the at

ter. His dates are, Seattle, Ocmo
ber 22 to November 6; Tacoma,

Yuan Shi Kai Appointed Viceroy of
Disaffected Provinces-May Refuse
Chinese Need Money to Pay Soldiers,
Who Are Deserting to Rebel Side
Railroad Stops Building.
The recall of Yuan Shi Kai, formerly
grand conductor and commander-in
chief of the army and navy, who was
banished from the capital some years
ago, and his appointment as viceroy
of Hu Peh and Hunan provinces indi
cate the plight of the Manchu adminis
tration. Administratively speaking,
Yuan Shi Kai is their last and best
card. He is known as a strong man,
and it was he who first organized the
northern modern army. It is believed
he is the only man around whom the
troops will rally, but it is uncertain
whether he will accept the appointment.
Runs on the government and other
Chinese banks have resulted in heavy
transfers to foreign banks. The Chi
nese goveramnt is endeavoring to nego
tiate emergency loans for military pur
poses and to pay the thousands of
troops. Prospects for heavy loans were
submitted today to banking groups of
four nations, but it is not likely that
these will be accepted.
The construction of the Hu Kwang
railway, as well as the conclusion of
the currency reform program,. will be
retarded indefinitely.
The diplomatic corps had a long con
ference regarding a possible attack at
Wa Chang. It was decided, however, l
that it would be unfair. to interfere,
and therefore Sir John N. Jordan vis
ited the Chinese foreign board and sug
gested only an avoidance of shelling
the foreign concessions.
Spreads in All the Provinces.
San Francisco.-Cable advices from
Shanghai to the local Chinese daily
paper, Chung Sai Yat Po, state that
the revolution has now spread through
every province of China, that large I
numbers of troops of the imperial army
are going over to the rebels and that .
many important cities have been cap- $
tured by the revolutionary forces. c
Chinese Dying By Thousands.
News was brought to Victoria, 13. C ., t
by the Empress of Japan, Monday, that I
thousands were dying of starvation in
Klangsu, along the Yangtse river, fol
lowing the floods, and the situation
was expected to result in a great aug- 4
mentation of the rebellious outbreak

since spread to other provinces. Ref

Put briefly, the whole country is un
der water, the Yangtsc has raised to
such an extent that it is now prac
tically bounded only by the ranges of
the hills which rise some distance from $
the banks, corpses are floating every- 1
where, and famine-stricken refugees are 1
dying from disease.
Ii places the Yangtse is 35 miles
broad, and floating bodies are seen in 8
numbers, while starving dogs were 7
seen feeding upon bodies.
The Chinese government has placed c
severe restrictions on telegraph lines,
evidently for the purpose of preventing si
communication between the rebels. si
